‘The Equalizer’ Takes Too Long To Find Balance (Movie Review)

What do you see when you look at these older actors taking care of business?  A week after writing about Liam Neeson’s latest foray into the realm of B-movie thrillers, I now get to write about Denzel Washington’s latest action/thriller.  All I can say is The Equalizer certainly takes its time.  By the end of […]

Finally some more Spike Lee “joints” are getting the love on Blu-ray.  The Spike Lee Joint Collection features two volumes and four films.  I don’t know if there is any more planned beyond these two releases, but I hope its the start of something.  This first volume of the set covers 1998’s He Got Game […]

THE SPIKE LEE JOINT COLLECTION Coming To Blu-ray!

This doesn’t make up for Oldboy, but alas someone is finally digging into Spike Lee’s back catalog of films.  And, funny enough, I now need to write a new piece for next week’s ‘Wishlist’ article as it was going to be for The 25th Hour which now sees a release date of June 10!  It also […]

2 stars, ‘2 Guns’, Too Fun? Maybe… (Movie Review)

2 Guns is a lot of things, but calling it ‘good’ is something I am having trouble trying to do.  Given that the film is based on a comic series, which I assume is very pulpy and full of dark humor, I could give it the benefit of the doubt that it is supposed to […]

‘Flight’ Coasts With Good Acting, In The Midst Of A Stormy, Heavy-Handed Drama

There is a solid 30 minutes of Flight that makes for one really compelling drama.  It involves a sequence that will terrify anyone that was already a nervous flier and sets up possible stakes for the rest of the film.  Unfortunately, that was merely the film that was being advertised, not the one that we […]

Safe House Explodes Onto Blu-ray This June!

I have to admit.  I know it sounds cheesy, but this film really was an adrenaline rush from start to finish for me.  I’m talking about the Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds vehicle, Safe House, that is.  I actually saw it twice in the theaters.  Unless it’s The Dark Knight, that’s something I usually don’t do, but […]

Malcolm X (Blu-ray Review)

We’re going to take it way back to the early 90’s for our next review in which actor Denzel Washington and Director Spike Lee team up to bring the story of Malcolm X to the big screen. Spike Lee’s grand opus about the controversial figurehead of the nation of Islam in the 60’s has finally […]

A ‘Safe House’ Built Of Rookies, Rogue Agents, And Bloodshed

Safe House has a lot of elements that should make it a pretty good watch.  A first rate cast, a solid story setup, and an “R” rating earned through the use of non-gratuitous violence, are all aspects that had me excited from the trailer alone.  For the most part, this film delivered just that, but […]

Safe House: Still-Bourne Identity (Movie Review)

If Michael Bay directed Safe House, a fast-paced, spies-on-the-run thriller, it could have been this generations The Rock.  With novice director Daniel Espinosa at the helm, it comes across as a Jason Bourne meets Training Day mish-mash that falls apart in the end and will wash from your memory soon after seeing it.  A better […]

Much Ado About Nothing (Blu-ray Review)

After showing the world what he could do with Henry V in 1989, Kenneth Branagh returned with another Shakespearean movie with Much Ado About Nothing, which was filled with a ton of talented people.  Some of these people like Denzel Washington, Emma Thompson, and Michael Keaton were perfectly cast while others such as Robert Sean […]

Unstoppable (Blu-ray Review)

Taking a look at Director Tony Scott’s filmography, it’s easy to see that he loves movies about vehicles and that he has a deep appreciation for speed.  Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, and The Taking of Pelham 123, represent just a few of his earlier efforts.  Now he’s back with another train movie […]

UNSTOPPABLE Races to Blu-ray February 15th!

 Tony Scott’s UNSTOPPABLE arrives this Frbruary 15th and I’m excited to see it since I missed it in the theaters.  If you’d like, you can read Aaron Neuwirth’s review for the movie here.  Tony Scott usually delivers the goods, but I wish he would try something other than his usual hyper-kinetic style of shooting although […]
